Make your own healthy nachos at home
Are you looking for a healthy nachos recipe to enjoy watching the footy, or as a quick lunch with the family? This recipe doesn't have many ingredients, doesn't take too long and it is jam-packed full of flavour with a delicious hint of chilli. It is all about texture and layering - adding the crunchy corn chips to the base of the bowl, then adding the soft kidney bean filling, the fresh guacamole and then the stringy mozzarella cheese. It tastes oh-so-good!
Step 1: In a medium fry pan, heat up the olive oil and add the onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.
Step 2: Add the drained kidney beans, tomato paste, chilli and oregano and stir.
Step 3: Using a fork, press down onto the kidney beans to squash them, whilst stirring with the fork at the same time. By the time you have finished, the mixture should be heated all the way through and resemble a paste.
Step 4: In a small bowl, combine the guacamole ingredients. For more guacamole recipes, see here!
Step 5: In a heat-proof ceramic bowl, layer the corn chips, a large scoop of kidney bean mixture, a couple of tablespoons of guacamole and a large handful of mozzarella. Place under the grill to melt the cheese and slightly brown the corn chips. Repeat for all the bowls. This recipe serves 3 - 4.
